Beatlejazz -Brian Melvin [drums/percussion]
                David Kikoski [piano]

If one loves melodies and a blend of great harmonies with exciting rhythmic explorations, one will love BEATLEJAZZ live or on CD. Brian Melvin and Dave Kikoski create a beautiful new standard for the music of "The Beatles" . Like the great modern jazz trios of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, "Beatlejazz" represents this type of clarity and conciousness in their playing.
As the jazz artists of the past always paid homage to the popular standards of their days, "Beatlejazz" take their hats off to one of the greatest body of music ever written.
All four Beatlejazz' CDs have been in top 10 of USA radio charts.
